There's really no secret. I just read MTB2 for internal medicine and MTB3 for other specialties. Then, UWORLD for MCQ, did it twice and I took notes from uworld and just read those notes 1 weeks before exam. I did uworld for CCS. I bought Archer for CCS and I didn't finish it because it was really long and didn't find it useful. I did great in CCS part without Archer.

I am done with uworld first time. score is between 60-65%. I am done with CCS for first time too. I want to ask how to start revision. Do I need to read MTB 3 ? How effective it will be if I read it ? I am confused. I would rather revise uworld.
Help me out.
Thanks

I acutally got 211 for my UWSA, which I took 2 weeks before my exam and ended up getting a 251 on the real exam Those self assessment exams are not accurate, especially for step 3 but UWSA does not include the CCS component, so either doing really well or badly on CCS, can have a drastic effect on your real score.
Good luck.

Smile 222 experience

Thanks all for all your input in this forum!!
Now Itís my turn to help others.
Iím an IMG, 2010 graduation.

Preparation Material:
Studied for 4 months with just UW. Also read my CK notes all along my preparation. Started CCS 6 weeks before the actual test with just UW, and review each case twice, which I think is more than enough for the test. Finished each UW block with some extra time, 8-10 minutes remaining.
No Kaplan, No MTB 2-3, No videos. No ARCHER.

Exam:
Day 1: I had the same CK feeling that I did really badly. But I just thought it was normal Ėpost test depression-. I hated the drug add questions, the social sciences and ethics questions. Had like 5 Step 1/ and about 10 Step 2 stuff. My impression was that it was a little harder than USMLE world questions. I had the feeling of having multiple answers in about 15 questions, so donít panic; remember whatís best for the patients or what comes first (UW algorithms).
In terms of time management I was always finishing the blocks on time, but when using UW I had like 8-10 minutes left. So be ready for this and train your reading techniques, or skip the hard ones.

Day 2: Really easy set of questions compared to day 1, questions were easier compared to UW. Had like 10 minutes left in each block. The cases are super easy. You may find one diagnosis in 10 of them, and 2 in the other ones (just use UW and you will be fine). All of them closed before the time limit.
Although this day seems longer compared to day 1, you will end up around the same time.

Score correlation
UW % average was 62, random and timed. 100% completed.
NBME 2 was a 490 6 weeks out
NBME 3 was a 530 3 weeks out
UWSA was a 210 5 days before test. I was really surprised. But I agree with what other people have said, if you pass UWSA, you'll pass the real one, do not pay too much attention to the 3 digit UWSA prediction.

Final score 222 !!! Got score on a Wednesday, 4 weeks after the test.

BYE BYE USMLE!!!!

Step 1 Step 2 around 230ís

So yeah, you will expect your score to go down around 10 points in step 3.

Default Passed!!!

Thank you to everyone on this forum! I was able to knock out this exam before residency started!!

UWORLD 1st time: 56%
UWORLD 2nd time: 78%

UWSA: 202
NBME: Not taken!

ACTUAL: 205

Resources used: Uworld, Uworld CCS, Uworld Biostats, My step 2 ck notes, Skimmed through MTB.

My experience: I slept really well both days! Drug ads were not that bad, but I was strapped for time and had to guess on a few. Lots of biostats! CCS cases were similar to Uworld.

I was quite blown away by Day 1.
I have 1 week to prepare for day 2. What would you recommend to do in this time aside from revising u world ccs cases?

Your advice would be really helpful for me at this time

Thanks

Congrats you have finished the worst day so far!!

You have plenty of time, review UW CCS cases twice and also look for the CCS rules there's a PDF somewhere in this forum. with that your are more than ready, the CCS part is really similar to UW but cases are way easier and straight forward.

My USMLE journey is over.
UW first time - 67%
Studied for 3.5 months: Kaplan Classroom anywhere step 3, MTB 3, UW (Qbank+CCS).
First day was piece of cake for me. During the second day exam session my computer TURNED OFF in the middle of 3rd block. So test center assistant spent ~ 10-12 minutes of my block time to turn on and log in. Also it was stressful for me and I couldn't concentrate as I did before.
Anyway I passed this exam (mostly bcz of 1 day result I think).
I didn't take any self-assessments bcz I was pretty confident in my preparation.

USMLE bye bye! Thanks GOD!!!

NBME has released form 4 which is the latest one to asses yourself for step 3. They removed all the previous forms. Is there anyone who has tried form 4 ?
I got 370 and exams are after a week. I am a little nervous.
I score 207 in UWSA.

I will be thankful for your guidance.

Default Done with the monsters

Done with step 3.

Prep: 4 months
did UW step 3+Made notes of it+MTB3+UW CK notes
UWSA: 230
Real Deal: 214

My exam was really weird, First day had stats in every question, but it was better than the second day. In my second day, I was 100% sure that I have failed the exam, I messed up 2 CCS cases, almost killed one patient :P, got most of my cases from the offline UW cases. not a single case from online UW ccs.
I practiced CCS a lot, almost everyday !! I was very comfortable with the software but some weird cases just got on my nerves on the exam day and I freaked out. Still I have better performance in ccs.
The only place where I scored the least is the ethics question part, and I really don't know why that happened.

Good Luck everyone !!!

I just took the exam, it was a very hard exam. Day 1 MCQ was very hard, 2 drug ads question sets I had to guess, because lack of time.
Day 2 MCQ so much better. CCS cases..11/13 cases went well.

The 2 cases out of 13Öone did not improve, and did not get worse, was an office case. The other case-2 mins in, I experienced computer problem-which I reported to test center and nbme, so waiting to see what happens with that. ☹

UWSA 1 week before 229
Real exam: 229!

Only went through uworld once and did half of MTB 3. Did uworld for CCS twice.

Exam is a monster but with alot of margin for error. UWSA was bang on target despite the fact exam was nothing like it.

Your 230 in the NBME....that was form 4, right?
I'm just confused cause they say the mean is 500 with 100 as the SD?!?!?!

I scored 330 on NBME form 4 and stressing the hell out.

But if you did get a 230 on Form 4 and got a 226 on the REAL EXAM...then great!

Study time around 2 months'
Used only MTB 3 ...but didn't really read much of it...
For CCS: Archers workshop(not live) and UW--- Those are more then enough

Q-bank: Did like 400 Kaplan Q's but didn't like them so stopped
U-World: as always is the key. Did twice: First time 64%, Second around 88%

UWSA 3 weeks before the exam:233

Final score 235!!!

Good bye USMLE......FOREVER!!!!

Warning! More recent info would be nice

Any more recent info on stats for Step 3? NBME/UWSA/UWorld% correlations with the real exam score? I'm taking my first nbme in the next couple of days! Thanks!

Thanks for the info. Seems to me that UWSA is the most accurate predictor as of now, looking at your post + the other posts in 2016. I plan to take the NBME in a couple of days and will leave UWSA for after I've finished the QBank.

Does UWSA include a CCS section?

UWSA stated that it does not correlate, so I was surprised to see my score so close to it. And like you mentioned about the prior posts, it seems to be somewhat of a predictor. Btw, I took it 10 days prior to the real exam. UWSA does not have a CCS section.

Yeah I think that's the best way to go, I'm taking the NBME tomorrow and then leaving the UWSA for the las 7-10 days before my exam.

Default passed!

been a while since I posted anything but passed Step 3
I am in residency and had difficult rotations to study in for the last 8 months. Really, I studied well (6-7hrs/day) 1.5w before the test. only took it because I had to.

UW- 55%. did all questions once. did about half the questions within the 1.5 weeks i studied.
Reviewed half the cases on UW.
UWSA- 176 about 1 month before my test... yea i know lol

Real Score- 200!

Forum has been great and helped me out with a lot. i obviously dont recommend taking the test like I did but if your in a pinch i do think 55% is passing. Good luck to all!

Prep Time: 20 days ( Max you can get in residency)
UW: 80%
UWSA: 240
CCS: Only Uworld
Exam: 247

Flipped through FA step1 for basic science: Total waste of time
Uworld: really helpful
Most of the concepts gained through practical experience in residency..

Got my score back to day. Got a 242. (STEP 1 250s, STEP 2CK 260s)
Barely studied 10% of UWorld. Went out on a limb before end of december because I wanted STEP 3 for H1b.
UWSA 243 so spot on.
Is it a good score in line with my previous STEPs?
